Just a few short months ago, the fashion industry got their hands on the latest "it piece" in the form of kimono style outerwear. Although, strictly speaking, the shawl type pieces are far from the genuine design of an actual kimono, they're still ridiculously adorable and quite affordable considering the fact that every store imaginable released their versions of the trend. They can be found everywhere from budget friendly stores like Forever21 to high end designers like Tory Burch.
Today's challenge is to reach for that cute kimono that you probable picked up in the early summer months. If you don't have one I got great news for ya....they're all on sale, that's the glory of shopping for yourself on the off season. When you buy your summer clothes from the summer clearance at the end of the season, and your winter clothes in the beginning of the summer....virtually everything is going to be super marked down and on sale, all you have to do is have the patience to wait until next year to wear it.

For my specific look, I wanted to let the kimono do all the talking by pairing it over a solid white outift comprised of my skinny jeans and a basic summer cami. To compliment the kimono, I topped off the whole look with my strappy gladiator sandals from Jessica Simpson.
